I like the "slo mo" idea....BUT I would do it after all the fighting is
done. Most people won't want to sit through it for every bout, neither will
the fighters.

Also, if you get the wrong person....the "slo mo" could get pretty boring.
As Tadhg mentioned Fridays are usually better for experimentation OR at a
fighter practice.
